[The] quick-reference English dictionary in a new paperback edition from Oxford is fully revised and excellent value for money ... [It is] ideal for quizzes and puzzle-solving. (Suite 101)
Complete dictionary and reference volume all rolled into one, at a splendidly low price. It includes all the words you will ever need for ordinary everyday use set out in the easy-to-use typography for which Oxford dictionaries are famous. (Writers Online)

In short, it's a dictionary and encyclopedia in one very handy size.
> it's easy to find any of the 120,00 definitions: the letter markers are visible from the outside.
> includes a thorough mid-section on famous people and places
> plentiful grammar and usage boxes (e.g. between diffuse and defuse).
Oh yes, it's also less than £8. A literal bargain.
This dictionary is comprehensive, but it clusters several related terms with the main word and sometimes you can be confused. I don't like the "figurative" phonetic nomenclature nor the fact not all words have phonetic description (A word phonetic might be trivial for a native but not for a foreigner!). All in all, it is a good dictionary if you don't want to spend much money and you need a light and comprehensive dictionary.
Also has handy 'usage' boxes which gives direction on how some words cam be used.
Well worth getting in my opinion.
On the other hand the product came before it's expected date. :)
That said ideal for pre GCSE level students, perhaps, but limited for A level and beyond.
